      Bought these for my podcast and I couldn't be happier with them.

      For the price you simply cannot beat it. They're great quality, they come with 2 different kinds of stands and they come with the mic cable included. Honestly buying 3 of these saved me a ridiculous amount of time, space, and money.

      The only downside is since they're attached to the table any kind of bump or tap on the table gets picked up but you'll get that with any mic mounted on the table you're using. Not a huge deal to me.

      I highly recommend these stands. 5 stars isn't enough.

      Its well worth the $. however it depends on what else you have mounted. I have a Blue Yeti plus the shock mount. The Yeti is a heavy mic and the shock mount is fairly heavy. This boom arm can BARELY hold the weight of both. If you have the Yeti I would suggest moving up to a more sturdy stand. Worth the money and a good product, though.

          I'm using this mostly for scratch VO that I record at an editing desk. This stand does what I need it to do, and for the money I feel it is a good deal. It easily supports a condenser mic I have attached to it.

            I am a amateur radio operator. I do not like my microphones on my desk. So I was looking for a boom type stand and the MXL one to me is the best.
            I have one from another company on another microphone and I am going to replace it with another MXL. It holds the weight of the microphone and stays where you put it. I would recommend it to any one.

              Comments about MXL BCD-Stand Desktop Microphone Stand:

              I have a small counseling practice doing online sessions with Westerners who live and work cross-culturally abroad. In order to create a sense of "being with" my clients I have a camera within 2-3 feet of my face rather than using the built-in camera on my screen. This allows my clients to experience me looking right at them rather than at an odd angle. Until purchasing your BCD-Stand Desktop Microphone Stand, we had rigged an old stage mic stand and zip-tied it to a folding chair! Needless to say, though it worked, it was extremely cumbersome, cluttered and a space hog in my small office. I've been looking around for viable options but wasn't successful in finding anything...until a friend sent me a link to your site.Your BCD-Stand Desktop Microphone Stand is an absolutely perfect solution for me! It mounted easily onto my wooden side table. The XLR cable is zip-tied to the stand so it's not in the way, and the camera is zip tied to the end extension. Now I can sit in my chair and effortlessly swing the camera toward me for a session. I can still make micro adjustments to the camera itself, and when I'm done, I just swing it back out of the way.Thank you so much...I strangely feel like I'm "officially" in business because of this purchase. You've made my year! Hope your business continues to grow and thrive.

                Comments about MXL BCD-Stand Desktop Microphone Stand:

                I ordered this boom for my home studio. I was a little apprehensive because I previously used a boom that costs nearly twice the price and I thought that maybe this one wouldn't be up to the job. I use an sE 2200a II microphone with it's shockmount, and pop filter. Not a light piece of equipment. Right out of the box, I noticed the fit and finish were flawless. It comes w/ two ways to mount it, and both work perfectly. My microphone stays in place, and because the ways to mount it are unlimited, I get NO noise transfer through the boom.
                I have been a very satisfied customer of B&H since 1988, and this is the first review I have ever written. Their customer service is truly outstanding!

                  One of your reviewers complained about the structure of these fully extendable and adjustable articulating stands. If this guy is working on a Chevy or hanging barbells on it he should not have putchased such an item. Electronic goods need care and proper treatment. I find this stand perfect for my use as a host before a microphone. The value should be apparent for those of us in this field. The cable and XLR connectors alone are worth half the price asked by B&H. The stand comes with two mounts to give a choice of permanent or portability. Yes I recommend this mount for studio work.

                    I had made my own desk mic stand using stuff around the house, in the end it was working because it was covered in duck tape, which made noises you heard through the microphone every time I moved it. When I finally decided I had to break down and buy a new mic stand, I figured I would have to spend roughly $300. I was shocked when I saw this one. I figured, if it was a horrible stand, I'm not out that much. Turns out the stand is everything I needed! It's easy to move and I set it up in under 15 minutes! B&H, you have a customer for life!

                    I used this as an arm for my at home V/O recording studio. It works great, the only thing I would like to see different is that the back arm itself is limited in its use, so it straight up and down and little give in the reverse direction.

                    For a low budget studio like mine! Its perfect!!

                      I bought this to be used for a podcasting setup, and it's just what I need. Sturdy, quiet, and not as pricey as those other models. Comes with a built in XLR cord and is threaded for a standard mic clip or other attachment. I love it! The only thing I wish it had different was a right-to-left hinge close to the mic so that it could be adjusted more easily there... but for the price it's great!

                        Does the trick. A good paring with the BCD-1 Live Broadcast Dynamic Microphone. Tightening hardware was a over tighten by the factory (beyond finger tight) and required pliers to loosen before I could adjust the hinges that control height and placement.

                              I have bought stuff like this from B&H in the past when I really just want something to work once. Like the little tin-foil scoop lights with painted light bulbs inside them for an emergency shoot by kids at a school.

                              I wasn't expecting that from this MXL stand, but it really is a totally inappropriate purchase for anyone who wants to use it more than once. The pieces just bend in your hands. It's not the quality of a standard scissor-stand lamp, even.

                              Really really low quality. Maybe fine for 20 bucks, but even a kid shouldn't use this because he can possibly get hurt trying to get this in a position.

                              I was actually thinking of getting an MXL microphone until I got this and realized this is not even consumer-grade.

                              Bought these for my podcast and I couldn't be happier with them.

                              For the price you simply cannot beat it. They're great quality, they come with 2 different kinds of stands and they come with the mic cable included. Honestly buying 3 of these saved me a ridiculous amount of time, space, and money.

                              The only downside is since they're attached to the table any kind of bump or tap on the table gets picked up but you'll get that with any mic mounted on the table you're using. Not a huge deal to me.

                              I highly recommend these stands. 5 stars isn't enough.

                                Overall this is a good mic stand for the money. I have a large set up in my home studio and needed something that could be put out of the way when not in use. This stand does that. The built in XLR cable keeps the cable from being in the way or just dangling from the stand. It comes with two ways to mount it one is a screw down mount and the other is a c clamp type. My only complaint about this stand is that the very bottom connection isn't able to go back further. If you want a good mic stand at a low price this is the way to go.

                                  I do Webinars with an Audio-Technica 4050.
                                  It is a rather heavy mic and this stand works really well with the mic.
